See, I really prefer the sketch vs the actual mini render for this one. I have no need of either version for my predominantly fantasy miniature collection, but still.

Yep, the feeling and look of sketch vs miniature is really different for all the examples shown so far.

Should have given her a Boys .55" anti-tank rifle instead of the Bren Gun. 

 

I mean, give the girl a little more to play with!

 

And what, paint her as Seras Victoria, ala Hellsing?

Why?

 

The Boys gun was in use by the British forces until 1943 when it was replaced with the Piat. 

And since she doesn't have the shoulder flash, her uniform is definitely Pre-1943.     

(They got the official black shoulder flashes in 1943. They replaced the red flashes with the silhouette of a Jerboa - an actual Desert Rat - made by the wife of the Major-General that took command in April 1941.  No idea exactly when that flash wntered use, or how many used it)

 

So, without black shoulder flashes, she's wearing a uniform typically for the time when the Boys was still in use in the 7th Armored Division.

 

The Boys gun was actually decent against early tanks such as the Panzer I and II, and even early versions of the III.

I was going to say, 'why not', which ... well, we do paint a lot of things because we can...

but that's pretty interesting, (if largely no use to me. ^^; ).

 

I was originally thinking of something like Seras' utterly ridiculous (-ly effective) Harkonnen cannon, I admit.

For a campaign I have no interest in, I'm finding this oddly fascinating.

 

The whole pin-up art turned into "normal" sculpts thing both baffles and amuses me.

Also, The Bren is a crew weapon, gunner and loader. The Boys is a single person weapon. 

So if you have someone with a Bren, where's the other one?

We got several of the previous Kickstarter, and the quality of the sculpts and the metal casting where both great.  Love those first 2, so will probably back again.

I must admit for a topic like this, I would like the actual minis to look more like the concept art.

I like the pin up style but it's getting lost in the transition it seems.

Also I hope there will be resin versions, I'm reaching the point where I prefer those over metal.

Well, I am of two minds on that. The concept art is fun, but the more sober minis I can actually use in games. I don’t know if it’s really a matter of being lost in translation so much as they wanted to make a certain kind of mini but thought the more eye catching art would draw people in.

 

the company itself is a historical rules company but just released their historical with fantasy elements board game. So I think they went in with the idea of just girls in uniforms. The concept art kind of does throw that off though. 
 

as far as resin... I would prefer the 28mm in resin too, as I much prefer resin to metal, but they stated there will not be a resin option for 28mm. :(

 

 

there is a video in their Anno Domini Kickstarter update talking about this project.

I paint for display and fun, don't play games, so that's why I would like the pin up style more.

For me it would be one or two minis to show off.

 

Sad there will be no resin.

I will keep an eye out how the Aztec Girl and the Conquistadore will look.

32mm I can still display in the army.

It ranges from 28mm to 32mm so she will be in the back of the force than..

Depending on the look I will either back or let it slide.

indeed. I hope they appeal to you. I used both the swashbuckler and Scottish girl as pathfinder characters. There was a stretch goal in their board game that gave cards so you could used the period appropriate girls from ks 1 as a faction in the board game, Anno Domini.

me too, but the metal ones from 1 were good. I generally don’t like metal, but these were nice. They were multipart but not too many pieces and no super tiny metal pieces.

So, the video yields the following information:

 

* the initial offering will be 10 girls, in 5 pairs of historical enemies. 
 

* first will be a Greek warrior and a Persian. Followed by The desert rat and an Italian soldier. 
 

* unlike the first Kickstarter, these ladies will have more fighting poses vs pin up poses. 
 

* they ran out of stretch goals last time and had to scramble but this time they have prepared. 

 

* there will be guest artists like last time. And some of the miniatures will be mounted on horses. 
 

* Some miniatures will also be dedicated to other games and have rules for that game. They said not just games that they produce but did not say which games. 
 

* there will only be two pledge levels, a buy 1 girl level and a buy 10 girl level, the 10 girl level qualifies for any free stretch goals.

I will keep an eye out for it.

Decide later.

 

Maybe if the Conquistadore and aztec girl look good for my purposes.

      Twisted are returning to Kickstarter soon, it's still in the teasing stage at the moment but there should be more details next week.
       
      Since their first Kickstarter wrapped up pretty dang late (even by usual Kickstarter standards), I'm hoping they've learnt a few lessons and keep this one fairly small and manageable.

      "Crosslances is an artistic reality consolidated for many years, we have dedicated ourselves very often to model making and playing miniatures in 28/32mm scale.
      This time, however, we want to launch a completely different project, an absolute novelty, our original idea.
      In fact, we want to make available to you these fantastic sculptures of ours, which can be printed directly at home, painted and placed inside your bookshelves to obtain stunning effects!"

      Coming soon!

      The Scarlet Citadel Kickstarter from Kobold Press. 
       
      This is the old school, mega dungeon you've been waiting for!
       
      And, it will be of particular interest to folks here, because one of the things the Scarlet Citadel Kickstarter will offer are a set of beautiful, poster-sized, table-ready battle maps to play on (and use all our awesome minis on! :)

      Be sure to click the link below to be alerted the moment this goes live!

      PDF is an inexpensive $1 supplement by Philip Reed, who has run multiple KS campaigns, and has been writing RPG material for 20+ years. He's also head bean counter at Steve Jackson Games.
       
      The rumors are essentially adventure seeds, mostly for single encounters. You have to stat out the details. See the free sample.
       
      Most of the material has been previously published in previous KS as articles. This KS is for a collection of his work. Sometimes, he'll give free PDFs of his previous work during a campaign.
       
      Personally, I recommend the PDF because you're only going to need a few pages at a time, and can cut up the printout for any illustration handouts.
       
      Dead tree copies are available through DriveThruRPG. See the KS for details.

      These would have been perfect for the 'gang fight' that opened the fantasy cops campaign -

      The way the orc is commiserating with the human.
       

       
      I don't play Blood Bowl, but even so, these tempt me.
       

       
      And a place for the fans to sit -

      It captures the feel I want for the city - a place where humans, elves, dwarfs, orcs, and others live together as a community. Where a human and an orc can both mourn for a bad play from their team.
       
      *EDIT* €15 for the STLs - pretty reasonable - and I think the bleachers will see a fair amount of use.
